Annual Campaign

Strengthening the community is our cause. Often, individuals in our community struggle with unemployment, chronic disease, financial hardship and difficult circumstances. The Y counts on the generosity of donors to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive regardless of their ability to pay. Together, we can give back to those in our community who need us most. Contributions to the Annual Campaign support the growing need for vital Y programs and services in our communities.

Endowment Fund

Strengthen Tomorrow Endowment Fund for Somerset Hills YMCA

Our wonderful volunteers, who are ambassadors of the Y’s mission, have played a significant and vital role in helping us to build our endowment fund to over $4 million in the last 3 years. We are so grateful to everyone who contributed to setting the foundation for future growth.

The Endowment is a permanent fund and a vital source of perpetual support for Somerset Hills YMCA, a branch of Somerset County YMCA. Endowment principal is not spent. It is carefully managed to yield a steady, reliable and perpetual stream of funding that is independent of operating revenue and other fluctuating income sources. Through prudent investment and judicious stewardship, the purchasing power of endowed funds grows over time.

Endowment income provides financial stability and allows a community service organization like our Y to pursue and implement long range planning initiatives with confidence – to continue to offer financial assistance to those who can’t afford program and membership fees, to fund important mission-based programs, and to expand our outreach to underserved members of the community, among many other challenges.

In short, the Endowment Fund, with major donor support, will be the vital bridge from today to tomorrow, filling the void and making sure we’re there for the next generation.
